Our stay in Florida is just about over for this year. We're getting ready to head north around the end of the month. It's been a nice stay here at the Nettles Island Marina except when the wind blows out of the south, it gets pretty "rocky" in our slip. We are all the way in the marina almost up against the bulkhead on the north end and we still get some pretty big waves in here with that south wind. Other than that, it's a pretty nice place to spend some time. It's only a short run over the Indian River Lagoon to all the shopping you might want to do.
We will won't be going all the way up to the Chesapeake Bay this summer, it's just too far to travel and getting rather expensive with the fuel prices along with everything else along the way going up. Instead we will be stopping in Brunswick, GA for the summer. That's just far enough north to satisfy my insurance company, and only about 300 miles from here so we can make the run in about a week instead of a month to the Chesapeake. We'll be coming back down to pick up our car so we'll have transportation this summer. Now we just have to wait out this tropical disturbance moving north from the Yucatan into the gulf. Don't know how bad that might end up getting, so we have decided to sit tight until it passes and then head out. We'll be staying at the Brunswick Landing Marina which is at 1701 Torras Landing, Brunswick, GA. If you happen to be in our neighborhood, stop by and say hello. Take care, and have a great summer.
